anyone know how to permantely resolve it only from halfway to soffit.
If you were a 1970s Spanish property developer, you'd just say: "Eees, how you say - 'expansion joint', yes please".
Joke out of the way, is it just the render that's cracked, or does it go into the wall below it too? From your photo, it looks like it's the wall that's cracked, but it's difficult to see.
Has it just appeared, or has it been there a while?
And is there any sign of it inside the house?
It goes through the wall seems the concrete blocks have split in half from bottom of render to top. No cracks inside house or bottom of brick work. Its been there a while as someone tried to cover it up with sealant.
Before you fix it, you need to establish the cause
This is quite typical of an expansion crack, how long is this elevation?
I agree with Abrickie: this is a strange one and needs the cause rectified ahead of remedials. Suggest you get an experienced SE to look at this
Sorry, came to the wrong page, looked at the title and thought you were selling
